    Hello all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Terralala, Mar 21, 2013.


    I am pretty excited to have stumbled upon this forum, I love reading and telling stories so I have decided to try my hand at writing. I have enjoyed creeping around the different threads for the last few hours and have learned a lot so far. I have very little previous writing experience not even in secondary school, when we were supposed to read and review of mice and men in school we watched the movie and talked about it instead. :rolleyes: The very little bit of writing I have done I enjoyed doing but never let anyone read so this is all very new.

    Hello Terralala, I know where you're coming from - it's hard to put your work out for scrutiny by others, but you'll find it friendly here. Your writing actually looks good, maybe it's just confidence you need.

    Enjoy and good luck.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Terralala!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
